  • “Look, I’m an unabashed lover of the Olympics. They are a delight to watch and enjoy. Relax. Have some fun. Because the Olympics are great.” – Don’t be a curmudgeon. The Olympics are awesome.
  • “And the 22-year-old, who is called ‘grandma’ by her teammates, had one of the most unforgettable performances of the day. One six-second clip of the opening to her ‘insane’ floor routine has been retweeted more than 18,000 times.” – Aly Raisman’s Amazing Olympics Floor Routine is Going Viral
  • “Ellis said he never asked Willock to help – the pair has simply gotten into a conversation about his son was competing.  Willock asked Hill if he’d attend if he had a ticket and the crowd funding idea took off from there, despite the two being strangers. Willock was also able to use her work connections; she works for a travel company, to help arrange the surprise trip.” – This Woman Sent Her Uber Driver To Rio After Discovering His Amazing Olympic Connection
  • “Just as the Olympics attract the world’s best athletes, the Games also lure many of the world’s greatest photographers to capture their superhuman feats.

The result is a daily flood of thousands upon thousands of images.” – The Most Spectacular Moments from the Rio Olympics So Far
